have just a reasonable doubt. >> mark o'mara was very strong in closing argument about reasonable doubt. >> do you have a doubt? beyond a reasonable doubt. just a reasonable doubt. beyond a reasonable doubt. >> attorney mark o'mara has taken aim at the prosecution. >> we are now awaiting a rebuttal from prosecution. >> this case is not about race. it's about right and wrong. >> he worked very hard to paint the big picture. >> to the living, we owe respect, but to the dead, we owe the truth. >> the trial of george zimmerman is nearing its end. >> judge debra nelson sent out the jury to begin their deliberations. >> jury deliberations at the george zimmerman murder trial. >> coming after 12 days of testimony. >> 12 days of testimony. 56 witnesses. >> and several hours of passionate closing arguments. >> jury watch now under way. >> the six-woman jury will decide george zimmerman's legal fate. >>> jury deliberations for tonight are over. they will start again tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. the six women on the jury will decide whether george zimmerman is guilty of second-degree murder, guil
:30 tomorrow morning, at which time mark o'mara will begin the defense's closing argument. the state will then have a chance to rebut their closing argument, and the jury will be charged. back with us, lisa bloom, faith jenkins and marcia clark, i want to listen to something that mark o'mara said, he will be up there tomorrow. what he said when he argued for basically a directed verdict at the end of the prosecution's case. saying that they failed to make their case. it came down to this one line. >> trayvon martin did in fact cause his own death. >> marcia clark, that is what they have to argue to this jury. that george zimmerman did not cause that death. the death was caused and trayvon martin's death was caused by trayvon martin. >> that is right, they're going to have to point to whatever they can to try and establish that george zimmerman was not the aggressor, that trayvon martin was, and that george zimmerman had no choice, ultimately but to shoot at trayvon martin. and so what they're going to point to, i'm sure, is number one thing is the way that the ballistic evidence, no
't take place on the stand. but when mark o'mara said the defense planned to rest wednesday. martin savidge, cnn, sanford, florida. >> want to dig deeper with our panelist. sunny hostin, marcia clark. and the defense table, danny savalos and mark geragos. and dr. lawrence kobalanski. mark, just about that neighbor who testified, do you think anybody buys that? if some neighbor of mine testified about what my voice sounds like when i'm screaming, how would a neighbor know this? >> you know, there's a more cynical view as to why they played that neighbor's video in court today. and i'm not going to inflame what is already an inflammatory situation. i don't think anybody is saying this is the ultimate in terms of a piece of evidence that they put on. i have to say that i'm a little cynical about this. >> sunny, what about you? how do you think it played in the courtroom? does it make any sense to you? >> not really. it's sort of the law of diminishing returns now. when you have george zimmerman's mother and uncle saying those are his cries for help on that tape, i think that's okay. ev
argument. >> marcia, it was interesting to watch mark o'mara the defense attorney without ever coming out and saying it, trying to make the point that he believed tracy martin changed his story about the 911 call, especially after talking do his attorney. is that usually an effective strategy? >> you know, it can be. and certainly in this case because it's coming from the victim's father, it is particularly effective. i don't know whether it ultimately will be, anderson, but to undermine his credibility and say, look, he changed his mind to say what was going to help the case most from his son's point of view is the defense argument. at the end of the day, this is going to be something that becomes awash. i'm not denying the fact that it is an effective tactic by the defense to use the victim's father in the way they did, as painful as it was to watch. i think ultimately this jury's going to make up their own minds, each side says what you expect them to say. one it's trayvon, the other is zimmerman, they may very well throw it all out and say, you know what, trayvon's father was under en
closing argument. >> marcia, it was interesting to watch mark o'mara to slyly make the point that he believed he changed his story about the 911 call, especially after talking to his attorney. is that an effective strategy? >> it can be because in this case it's coming from the victim's father. i don't know whether it ultimately will be but to undermine his credibility and say, look, he changed his mind to say what was going to help the case most from his son's point of view, that is the argument. i think at the end of the day it becomes a wash, though i'm not denying the fact that it is an effective tactic by the defense to use the victim's father in the way that they did, as painful as it is to watch. i think each side says what you expect them to say. one it's trayvon, the other side it's zimmerman. at the end of the day, the jury, it going to be up to them and they may very well throw it all out and say trayvon martin's father was under enormous stress, he called in to say his son was missing just before he fond out he'd been killed. after all, we don't know of what to make of wh
this. doing the dummy exchange when the dummy was brought out. mark o'mara used the dummy and the state used it as well. the jurors in the back row during that demonstration actually stood up to watch what was happening. john guy there. juror 6, this is a juror we been paying attention to. this juror takes notes consistently. this is a native floridian. she's been in the area for ten years. she's unemployed right now. she has two kids. one 11 and one 13. she also asked a lot of questions during the selection process. and juror e-4 is someone according to the documents that all the jurors submitted, she keeps her head down when that 911 call has been played. and this is, of course, that call has been played over and over throughout the course of the trial. recent transplant from iowa. watches football, reads, travels. two of the other jurors have developed a bit of a relationship. they frequently nod at each other, smile at each other and pasds notes. this is a jury that has been engaged. something else about this jury. every time judge nelson has asked if they want to continue or take a
be appropriate. no, no, no, it is going to be much longer. >> that was defense attorney mark o'mara after the court session today. back with me, lisa bloom, faith jenkins, and marcia clark, author of the new novel, "killer ambition." marcia, starting off the day, the defense's animation can be used, not as an exhibit. it will not be something going into the jury room with the exhibits but it can be shown to them used as an illustration device during the closing arguments. so it seems like we'll see it during closing arguments, how do you expect it to work? >> well, they will use it as an exhibit as an illustration of their view of the case. showing, of course, that george zimmerman was the victim and that trayvon martin was the aggressor. will it work? i know that many say it can be extremely impressive to the jury. but in my experience you can tip it a little too far to the cartoon side. the fact that this animation looks like avatar can make it look like a cartoon event. what i think, something much more compelling is john guy getting on top of the dummy in the courtroom. that brings it
of showing how could possibly it could have gone down the way george zimmerman said. and then mark o'mara gets on top of the dummy, which weighs about maybe five pounds and starts pounding into it the ground to show how george zimmerman's head could have been pounded. i hope somebody pointed out the fact that that dummy weighs 5 pounds and george zimmerman weighed 200. you don't pound a person that way. >> john, go ahead, quickly. >> uwas going to say you also got to look at how he was moving around when the police arrived. he wasn't stumbling, falling. all of his gait was perfectly normal. this is not a person who had been pounded into the cement because he would have been dizzy or something. >> and did not ask for medical attention which says his state of mind was that he didn't even the had what injuries one could argue. panel, please stay with us. much more after the break. stay with us. i met a turtle friend today so, you don't get that very often. it seemed like it was more than happy to have us in his home. so beautiful. avo: more travel. more options. more personal. whatever you'r
